MD Emissions Testing

Emissions testing is a requirement for Maryland residents, but taking time out of your workday to get it done can seem like a big pain. United States Vehicle Registration Service can take care of every step of the emissions testing process so that you can finish your workday in peace or enjoy your weekend without needing to find a VEIP station.

About MD Emissions Testing

Maryland offers flexible emissions testing options depending on your vehicle type. If you have a passenger vehicle or light-duty truck model year 1996 or newer, or a heavy-duty vehicle model year 2008 or newer, the VEIP technicians will use the On-Board Diagnostics test. This test uses a scan tool hooked up to your car’s OBD computer, which determines if your emission system is working properly. If you have a check-engine light that is illuminated, your vehicle may fail. However, you’re in luck! USVRS can help you find a trustworthy auto repair shop to perform the necessary repairs, or we can complete your OBD drive cycle to reset the onboard computers.

Your Checklist

To complete your MD emissions testing, we need the following documents:

  • Vehicle registration card
  • Current vehicle insurance card

We also ask that you prepare your vehicle for us to use it

  • Remove money, electronics, and valuables from your vehicle
  • Ensure that the gas tank is at least 50% full
  • Clean the car interior
  • Tell your driver any odd habits that your car has so that they are aware

Don’t Forget!

If your vehicle fails the emission test, the station representative will point out what issues were detected with your vehicle and provide USVRS with a brochure detailing the Maryland Certified Emissions Repair Facilities you can take your vehicle to. At that point, we can take your vehicle for repairs immediately or schedule a date to have your service completed.
